From the Beast's orifice
Reb Schneur dribbled
Drafting out his way through
Ranks and files and columns
Chapter 3: The Tunnel and the Light
Reb Schneur: Have you warred and sought shelter too?
Soldier: A soldier gulped by Behemoth:
In my country I was a soldier
There I became a citizen
To India I came to clear my mind
And here I turned soldier.
Reb Schneur: Turned back again?
Soldier: Where else to turn?
Reb Schneur: You who raised me from the fire
And bared me to the Queen
And brought me into the world!
Jonah: Can’t remember...
Hey, did they end up burning the Great City?
Soldier: They still are.
Jonah: So drink with me to its memory!
And Behemoth sounded his horn
And the mighty, fetid winds blew,
Banishing towards the puckered light.
He released his captives
To noise and commotion.
